    Pakistan Navy has 2 new Swiftship corvettes on order

    @Quwa Given the different vessel types that will enter service what roles will each play? Eg is F22P going to be assigned general purpose duties and Type 54 air defence?

    Pakistan Navy’s 2300 Tons OPVs launched by Damen

    Most countries that ordered the Sigma in either Corvette or frigate versions initially placed orders for 2 like Pakistan and have subsequently placed follow up orders. Do you think it’s likely Pakistan will do the same?

    Pakistan Navy’s 2300 Tons OPVs launched by Damen

    Are these essentially the Sigma class corvettes? Seems to be a successful design it’s also in service with Indonesia, Morocco, Romania and Mexico.

    Capabilities of PAF Dassault MIRAGE-III/V.

    This is my point exactly. What munitions and weapons could we partner with this platform and who can we work with on this? For example for naval missions we could partner with Ukraine to integrate the Neptun cruise missile. We’ve worked with South Africa to integrate the Raptor series of bombs.

    Capabilities of PAF Dassault MIRAGE-III/V.

    Having an aircraft to act as a heavy duty bomb truck is one thing and I would favour the JH7A for this reason for starters but with the increased ranges and capabilities of modern SAMs this then needs to be combined with long range precision stand off weapons. Looking at the aircraft is just...

    PAF F16-Blk70 possibly coming - TO BE CONFIRMED

    No official source or statement to support this so will err on side of caution and wait till it actually happens. Not questioning @Khafee character or integrity until I see it I remain sceptical. I remember a few years back on the forum my excitement at the initial F16 order and then President...

    What can Pakistan can purchase to improve air defense?

    Could build a gun based Air Defence capability. The OTOMATIC turret has a 76mm gun latest version is DRACO turret. Made by Italy whom Pakistan has a good history of weapon purchases. Chinese systems like LD2000 for point defence and truck mounted PG99 Guns.

    Pakistan Navy’s Blue Water Ambitions Navy

    South Korea is only just now transitioning to having a Blue Water Navy inducting AEGIS Destroyers and Dokdo class LPHs. Most of their programs were initiated in mid 2000s to build new submarines, destroyers, frigates and advanced amphibious warfare capabilities. I think theirs is a good...

    Pakistan Army's T-129 ATAK Helicopter Deal | Updates & Discussions.

    Is there scope to integrate the avionics and weapon systems of the ATAK into Z10ME as a platform? That way if in the long Pakistan and Turkey can see if French Safran or Polish PZL engines could be integrated into ATAK for the long term whilst still having Z10ME as an interim solution

    Capabilities of PAF Dassault MIRAGE-III/V.

    @denel https://www.africandefence.net/project-carver-emerges-from-the-shadows/ Fascinating article. I’m gutted you guys never went all the way with this. Would love it if this level of knowledge and technology was shared with Pakistan for Project Azm and also for bringing up the Mirage Fleet...

    J-10C A sole international market for China's J-10 fighter jets is taking shape

    What does Pakistan need in terms of weapons in case of a war with India?

    Complete Air Defence network covering low, medium and high altitude. I’d advocate the creation of a tri service corps drawing elements from Army, Navy and Airforce to defend military installations and major cities. In terms of hardware I’d opt for equipment from our all weather friend China...

    Italian Puma 6X6 for Pakistan.

    This interests me greatly. I appreciate members talking about MRAPs and higher levels of protected vehicles BUT think about what this vehicle was designed for and WHO it was intended to be used by. In the photo attached is admittedly the 4x4 version of puma. Note it’s entering a chinook...
